It’s been a while since we’ve heard of anything new from action star Jason Statham and the pandemic hasn’t helped matters any but now we have more news on his upcoming project which will reunite him with Snatch director Guy Ritchie. The new film is called Five Eyes and it sounds pretty cool and it looks like it’ll be another opportunity for The Stath to unleash his particular set of skills.
Per Variety: The film features Statham as “an agent recruited by global intelligence alliance “Five Eyes” to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapon that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with a high-tech CIA expert, he sets off on a globe-trotting mission to infiltrate a billionaire arms broker.”
STXfilms will be handling the distribution sales to the U.S., U.K. and Ireland while STXInternational will take care of the foreign market. Sales will be set to commence at the upcoming virtual Toronto Film Festival.
Now hopefully, the news of Statham leading an all new Expendables film will still come to fruition but I’m not holding my breath on that one.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more on The Stath and Five Eyes!
